Streetfighters #232 should be arriving with subscribers today.
Cover and spread for this issue is dominated by Colin’s awesome twin turbo GS1000S. This sublime machine retains the oldskool GS look, but brings it bang up to date with modern chassis parts, futuristic styling details and a very healthy 250bhp at the wheel.
We’ve also got a very rare – in fact, unique – Martek beam-framed Ducati, built not for a customer but as Martek Mark’s own personal runabout, plus a striking café racer BMW R100, Icon’s mentalist ‘Low Down & Shifty’ XS650 project and a frankly rather awesome TL1000R built by Roman at Full Of Hate, finished to his usual stratospheric standards and which showcases his first custom-made FOH frame.
We’ve also grabbed top stunt rider Lee ‘Pacman’ Bowers and got the lowdown on all the modifications he’s made to his stunt bike, in the latest in our technical ‘Anatomy Of…’ series, and backed that up with Gary’s minimalist FireBlade, an unusual choice of donor in Rich’s ZX-9R fighter, and a rather out-of-the-ordinary Fanmail Focus featurette from Streetfighters Cheshire MCC.
With news updates on all the best events this summer, including the Farmyard Party, Pendine LRC and of course the revised, bigger-and-better-than-ever FighterFest UK, plus new product information and evaluations, illustrations from Andy Sparrow and Vizman, pervert badgers, Fanmail, Project Bike updates and Holly Peers wearing hardly any clothes, we’re pretty pleased with this one. In shops next Thursday 2nd May.
